Owner/ Head Coach Matt Steele has been CrossFitting for an astounding nine years. Technically, his specialties are Olympic lifting and gymnastics, but you’ll probably know him more for his humor on the gym floor. "I love to make people laugh, and I love comedy," he says. "Nothing breaks the tension of a workout more than a good laugh! I love to entertain when I'm coaching."
Matt was into surfing and riding motorcycles when he was younger, and discovered CrossFit as an adult when a friend invited him to try it. "I barely survived!" he said. "It only took one workout and I was hooked. I had never seen such drastic physical changes happen so fast, but what I was really humbled by was the challenge CrossFit provided mentally."
When Matt isn’t at the gym, he stays active by hanging out with his girlfriend and his dog at the beach or on a bike ride. He’s also a big audio book listener and espresso drinker. "Having coffee and a book is always a nice way to unwind and get my mind refocused outside of CrossFit," he says.
